How about this for confusion. Belfast artist Duke Special presents ‘Freewheel’ as his contribution to the SXSW 2006 torrent, it’s a blast. Later that year ‘Freewheel’ is renamed ‘Last Night I Nearly Died’ and becomes a moderately successful single in Ireland. Now ‘Freewheel’ is set to be released but is a completely different tune altogether. Ah well, just as well then that Peter Wilson looks like a dreadlocked Robert Smith and sounds like Damien Gough to complement the already fuzzy logic. ‘Last Night I Nearly Died’ is a nice piece of whimsy, full of orchestral noises in the dark and a chorus that’ll keep the kids happy until school reopens in a week’s time. Could Duke Special perhaps be the answer to the curse of the singer songwriter? KD
